Attorney Defending You Against Sex Crime Charges
More than perhaps any type of criminal charge, sex crime charges can derail your life. A sex crime conviction will come with possible jail time and fines, but sex crime convictions also involve the sex crime registry requirement. Being placed on the sex crime registry means that anyone can see that you have been convicted as a sex offender. This will destroy your reputation in the workforce, in the housing market and in your day-to-day life. It is critical to fight back against sex crime charges aggressively to avoid being listed in the sex offender registry.
Attorney Louis C. Mussari can help. In addition to spending nearly a decade as a criminal prosecutor, he is an aggressive, skilled criminal defense lawyer who can help you avoid prison and avoid the sex offender registry. While every case is unique, and there is no way to predict a specific outcome; you can be sure that, when you work with Louis C. Mussari, Attorney at Law, you will have every possible opportunity to get the outcome you’re seeking.
Serious Criminal Charges
While there are some sex crime charges that are filed as misdemeanors, the vast majority of sex crime charges are serious felonies, many of which involve up to 20 years of a hard time in prison, the sex offender registry and other unsavory consequences.

Defenses Against Sex Crime Charges
Any sexual offense against another adult can be nullified by consent. If the person consented to the activity, there is no crime. However, it is important to note that, legally, minors are not capable of consent.
In addition to consent, it is possible to defend against these charges by challenging the reliability of the witnesses or the alleged victim, including tampering with alleged child victims and witnesses by coaching them on what exactly they should say and how exactly they should act in court. Forensic evidence, illegal search and seizure, and intent are other areas that are often ripe for legal challenges.
If there is any way to fight the charges against you, the law firm of Louis C. Mussari, Attorney at Law, will find it.
